I've never needed to reserve a room with cash at a DVC resort. Just decided to extend our Thanksgiving vacation by 1 day and add Friday 11/28/2003 (am on borrowed points already for this trip and need all I have for next big family vacation 11/2004). I called MS today and asked to extend my stay with a member cash room. She responded that they have some studios available but not for the member discount. ????? I don't understand this. I called CRO (I am an AP holder) and they have no available studios at OKW for 11/28/2003. How can MS have a room (at the regular rate) and not give it to a DVC member at the discount and CRO show that there are no rooms (studios) left at OKW. Do I have to wait until a certain window opens to reserve with cash through MS? I've looked through the Guidebook and I am a little confused - sounds like I have to wait? Quote from Guidebook "However, any Member inventory unreserved by Members within 60 days of any arrival date may be made available for maintenance, waitlists, and rental." Do I have to wait until 9/28/2003 to allow members to reserve with points then if a studio is available I can call and get it at the DVC member discount? Thanks in advance for any help.
